The school works under the Behaviour Policy which is summarised as
“What is considered to be a disruptive behaviour is not always agreed upon by everyone. What must be agreed upon is that desirable behaviours are reinforced and used as a model for others.”
At different times in a child’s life they will exhibit challenging behavior for a whole host of reasons. It is key that we work together to find ways to help your and your child deal with these challenges in a safe and positive way.
Within school it is essential that your child follows the schools rules.
We take safeguarding pupils extremely serious at Abbey as all schools do. Staff are encouraged to have an open dialogue with parents and carers to ensure that we all keep your children safe from harm.
Policies, procedures and risk assessments are fully in place to ensure the safety, welfare and care of our pupils. Governors play an active role in ensuring that procedures are carried out. Mrs Windle is the Safeguarding Lead and Mrs Maxine Bolsover will deputise for her in matters of child protection in her absence. Parents should be aware that under the 2004 Children’s Act we all have a duty of care to children. The school is required to take any reasonable action to safeguard its pupils. In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, we are obliged to follow the procedures established by the Rotherham LA and inform the Social Services of our concerns.
